Donation Drive Ignites STEM Education in Atiwa West District, Ghana

Our Field Operations team, led by our Co-founder and Executive Director Seth Ogoe Ayim, PMP, MPA, MACS-CP, IP3, CITIP, STEM Expert, embarked on a transformative mission to the Atiwa West District of the Eastern Region in Ghana. Their objective: to empower education by donating 24 desktop computers fully equipped with virtual STEM, Computer Science, Robotics, and AI Labs, along with Elevate the Science of Reading software. These valuable resources are poised to revolutionize the teaching and learning experience for over 3000 students in the Atiwa district, fostering a passion for STEM and cultivating lifelong learning habits.
